Clarksons Offshore & Renewables has hired a veteran in the European offshore wind farm sector to lead the company’s efforts to grow market share in the US.

The unit of UK-based broking giant Clarksons has brought on Jonathan Lints, who will be charged with attracting more investments focused on developing offshore wind vessels in the US market and further growing the sector.

“I look forward to applying my experience of working on the construction of multiple North Sea wind farm projects to the opportunity before us in the US,” Lints said in a statement.
